KUCHING, Jan 18: Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) will not allow racial divisiveness happening in the Peninsula be brought to Sarawak.

“We don’t want issues which will break the connection among Sarawakians to be brought to Sarawak,” Petra Jaya MP Datuk Seri Fadillah Yusof said during the Chinese New Year celebration at Sarawak United People’s Party (SUPP) Matang Hall on Saturday afternoon.

According to Fadillah, by working hard together, the economy and the development of the state will be stronger without help from the Peninsula.

“In Sarawak, we help each other regardless of race and the religion,” Fadillah said, adding that this was the Sarawak spirit.

“We all celebrate festive seasons together in Sarawak as we share the joyous season with everyone,” he said.

Meanwhile, a total of 120 senior citizens and disabled persons (OKU) received ang pow and mandarin oranges for the Chinese New Year celebration. —DayakDaily
